11Alive spoke with Former U.S. president Jimmy Carter on Tuesday and discussed a number of issues, including the acquittal of George Zimmerman.
During the interview, Carter went on-the-record, for the first time, concerning the Zimmerman Trial.
“I think the jury made the right decision based in the evidence presented because the prosecution inadvertently set the standard so high that the jury had to be convinced that it was a deliberate act by Zimmerman and that he was not defending himself and so forth. It’s not a moral question, it’s a legal question and the American law requires that the jury listens to the evidence presented.”
Carter thinks the verdict will stand because it cant be appealed as a criminal case.
